What Makes a Kitchen Stand Out in 2016?

Kitchen design trends

Redesigning your kitchen can be overwhelming. The space hosts some of the most important people and things in your home, so designing a kitchen well is important! Have no fear: Heidi Sherratt and her team at Interior Visions are here to help.

Here are a few tips from these experts in kitchen design:


White and gray are the trending colors in sophisticated cabinetry and shelving in today’s kitchens. Further, the shaker door style cabinets are a top choice for designers and homeowners because they work well with both traditional and contemporary styles.


Instead of a bold primary color for backsplashes, opt for beautiful soft, muted color palettes. Neutral pastels like pale blue, green, gray, and creamy off-whites are the newest color trends.


Subway tiles, small penny round tiles, metal and mirrored tiles, in addition to unique glass mosaics are some favorites for fun kitchen backsplashes. For a more elegant and streamlined look for your kitchen, try using solid slabs for your countertops and continue them up the backsplash. This is a gorgeous look!


Add a bit of flair to your neutral kitchen with a touch of brushed brass, rose gold, copper and chrome finishes on cabinet hardware, plumbing fixtures and accessories.


Lighting is essential in a kitchen, and using fixtures like oversized pendants, chandeliers and bold colors along with the newest LEDs makes lighting fun!


The 2016 kitchen will focus on simple, well-organized designs providing convenience for families on the go. Investing in quality products and functional designs are sure-fire ways to a successful kitchen redesign.
